I’m an Active Duty US Army chaplain, ordained and endorsed by the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). In my time in the Army, I have experience working in several ministry contexts, including three years of prison ministry. I’m currently an ACPE Certified Educator Candidate, working at Brook Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas.
My wife, Sara, is an ordained pastor serving Rolling Oaks Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), and we have three kids.

Several years ago I posted this sign on my door as a mark of my ministry:
No matter where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.
Really. I mean that.
Liberal, Conservative, Independent, and Apathetic.
Atheist, Christian, Jew, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Agnostic, Pagan, Heathen, None-of-Those and None-at-All.
Seeing a theme here? If I left you out, know that I include you.
All orientations and genders.
Church-going and church-avoiding.
You are welcome here.
As your chaplain, I make you this promise:
I will not judge you.
I will not condemn you.
I will ask the hard questions necessary for growth.
I will extend the grace of God to you.
You are welcome into this Sacred and Safe space.
